Use a Pond Skimmer with Open Circuit Pump
If You’re Going to Use a Pond Skimmer, Make it a Point to Pair it with an Open Circuit Pump.
Because if you use a close-circuit (or close-impeller) pond pump with your skimmer, then chances are high that it will get jammed, as the skimmer usually “sucks in” a lot of dirt and debris. In an open-range (or open-impeller) skimmer, the “sucked-in” dirt and debris can easily be cleaned off.
